The color episodes of this show were good too, but the episodes we prefer to watch are the black & white episodes with Mike (Steve's oldest son) and Bub (the boys' grandfather - Steve's father-in-law). It was a very different show, with such plots as Steve's neighbor wanting to take a pleasant Sunday drive with his wife and daughter, but ending up hoodwinked into taking Steve's car and about a dozen others with them; or Bub losing Chip's frog that he was going to use for show and tell. There was an episode where Rob was reading detective novels and became convinced that someone was following him. Another episode had Mike taking an umbrella stand made from a hippopotamus foot to his fraternity house where they used it so as to make it appear as though a giant beast walked into a nearby lake and never came out. One episode took place on the morning that daylight saving time ended, and Bub turned the clocks ahead instead of back, forcing a tired crew to roll out 2 hours early. The whole episode was staged to the narration of a NASA public info film that Chip was watching on TV.
Some of what makes these episodes important is the way we see Chip and Ernie develop a close friendship prior to the 1965 adoption episode. These earlier episodes make that particular one more weighty and understandable.Read more ›
At a time when family income is stretched, CBS/Paramount dangles classic American TV treasures before the eyes of the very core fans of the product; baby boomer families (AND their greatest generation parents; those fortunate to have them still) and now Gen X & Y's are finding series like 'My Three Sons' quite refreshing. The media offered? Exorbitantly priced half season sets, sets with music altered or completely replaced, grainy transfers full of artifactual trash, sets with edited footage & missing laugh tracks and so on.
We as consumers must enjoin CBS/Paramount to realize that the American consumer ever so hungry for the media offered will just take but so much abuse before "Just Saying NO"!
This offering of My Three Sons: The First Season, Vol. 1, (a perfect classic American TV treasure) at ~$1.50 per a 25 minute episode is a direct finger in the eye of a huge consumer demographic. CBS/Paramount, I know you have heard our voices; but you don't care enough to be listen!
Once again, Paramount turns to pure greed tactics to gain hefty profits while giving little to no concern about the consumer. With a show having 12 seasons you could spend an astronomical amount to own this series if most or all of the seasons are offered as split seasons. It's only a half hour show for Pete's sake.
So i will have to pass on owning My Three Sons and that greatly disappoints me.
Shame on you Paramount!!!!!
I'm beginning to wonder who is behind all of the big studios compilation and release of the classic TV DVDs-they need to remember THE PEOPLE THAT BUY THESE RELEASES BUY THEM FOR THE ORIGIONAL CONTENT-ALL OF IT!!!!!
Times are tough-money's tight-I'm gonna spend mine on the best releases and these reviews help me determine which ones they are-TAKE HEED Paramount and all you other studios!!!!!!!
(fyi-I didn't purchase these-I'll just keep watching the re-runs on Familynet TV).

|Will all the music be removed like Paramount did on "The Fugitive Season...||
Well, they did it again. On all but two episodes the original scores have been replaced just like in The Fugitive. This will never stop until people start boycotting these companies. It's getting so you can't pre-order anything anymore because you never know if you'll get the product you... Read More

Tell me- is the UK edition edited like they say the USA version is? This has avid fans in an understandable uproar.

Haven't heard anything Glenn. Remember NOBODY really knew what the music was going to be like on Season 2, Vol. 2 until after it was released. There is no way I'm buying Season 3, Vol. 1 until I hear from real fans what it's like. Maybe THIS time they'll get it right - I know it's what we're all... Read More
